2012 Persimmon blossoms & tree

In rereading notes I was reminded that I hadn't posted the Persimmon Date-nut Bar's recipe.  Our tree in the front yard has many persimmon blossoms which bodes well for a crop this year. I think I have used the last bag of pulp so I may have to just post the recipe with out a picture of the bar cookies.
More to come.

Golden Bear in Port of Sacramento

It is a beautiful day in Sacramento and an important arrival came in this afternoon. The Golden Bear, a ship stationed in Vallejo that is the training ship of the California Maritime Academy came up the channel to the Port of Sacramento. 

Why was I interested? One of our grandchildren got accepted to the Maritime Academy for Fall 2012.  It is an impressive vessel and I just had to go see it.  Wasn't necessary to climb aboard (which I don't know if it was possible today)but just had to be up close.  A lot of Sacramentens had the same idea.
